I got off work a little early today, so I moseyed over to our new Triangle-area yarn shop:
and bought some yarn!
That there is some Quince Chickadee in Peacock and String Theory Merino DK in a gorgeous copper colorway called Canyon.
It's okay to be jealous.
It was nice to see some different yarns, yarns I haven't knit with before. I don't know if it works this way with everybody, but when I first became a Knitter, it was about the things I wanted to make. Now, having been a Knitter for nearly a decade, it's all about the yarn. I still have a queue of patterns I'd like to make one day (and it's a very large queue), but my yarns-I-absolutely-must-knit-with list is the big dog. And she's bitey if I don't feed her.
Anyway - new yarn shop! Absolutely lovely. It's very cozy, and I love all the little nooks, like secret yarn hide-aways. And, like I said, lots of different yarns to try!
Here's a truncated tour, courtesy of my yarn...
Now I just have to figure out what to make...decisions, decisions.
